Allied Reliability offers best-in-industry maintenance, reliability, and operational consulting to industrial and manufacturing companies. Our reliability experts are ready to help address uptime and productivity challenges from shop floor to executive suite.

Understanding asset health and managing risk across all of your assets is core to not only understanding your current performance and cost structure, but also being able to project future performance and cost.

 

RELIABILITY ASSESSMENT

Allied's Reliability Assessment Process (RAP) reviews your maintenance work practices and provides formal feedback on your biggest gaps and most significant opportunities. This assessment is based on our extensive best practices database, covering over 3,500 plants across all industry verticals. The standard RAP follows a process that ensures each step builds a sustainable business case for change and has the best chance of success.

RELIABILITY BENCHMARKING

An effective assessment uses a proven process that quickly identifies where the biggest gaps in reliability lie and where the greatest gains can be achieved. It is often stated that one must know where they are before one can get to where they are going. This holds true for plants looking to develop an improvement initiative or bolster one already underway. 

RELIABILITY PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENT

Reliability Performance Improvement is all about making the right decisions to optimize Total Cost of Ownership and ensure that the most desirable maintenance strategies are actually executable. In order to improve asset performance, Maintenance & Reliability Engineering elements such as Reliability Centered Maintenance and Root Cause Analysis need to be applied.

Reliability-Centered Maintenance

An overall reliability strategy must be grounded in a fundamental understanding of how equipment fails. Allied's Reliability-Centered Maintenance (RCM) process, derived from RCM Blitz®, is the hub of Allied's integrated approach to designing and implementing failure-modes driven reliability strategies that return results in a fraction of the time of traditional RCM methods. This facilitated process includes Failure Modes, Effects, and Criticality Analysis (FMECA); Process Verification Techniques; Consequence Reduction Tasks; Spare Parts Strategy; and Implementation Strategy.

Root Cause Analysis

No organization is immune from equipment failures, operations breakdowns, or human errors. What sets the successful company apart from the rest is its ability to solve problems in a way that prevents recurrence by addressing the root cause of the failure. Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is the core skill used by Maintenance and Reliability Engineering professionals to resolve problems that impact an organization's ability to meet strategic objectives. RCA is not just a tool, it is a systematic methodology used to eliminate chronic problems that affect an organization. Eliminating the root cause of problems through effective RCA prevents problem recurrence and achieves stronger results for ALL key performance indicators and, ultimately, competitive advantage in the marketplace.
